More active than some mods!
I also think @beyoncésweave and @Subwaykid would be good.
Some of these nominations! I’m ready for some DNC-esque corrupt shenanigans.
Mh I'd say
especially for all those topics where nuance and knowledge are needed with complex topics - mental health, LGBTQ+ community, cultural appropriation and representation etc.
@Andy French for the pop threads which are always on the verge of implosion
I admit I don't know how things are going in the K-pop subforums but I'm sure there's somebody who will perfectly fit for those too.
Spoiler: Japanese bonus track
The team of mods that generally oversees the worst Comeback Corner threads... needs to go*. There are still misogynists, racists, brexiters and Trump supporters left unchecked there and it's pretty uncomfortable sometimes. The friend of Peter who riles up the members for fun needs to go. The mod who "separates the music from the artist" and gets offended by "sis" needs to go.
*With "go" I mean "take their powers away", then we'll see how long they last without them.
Me actually tallying up everyone's votes
Thank you for all the votes, some pretty perfect suggestions.
I'm not nomming anyone specifically for this job because it's equivalent of cleaning feces off the walls, but I do feel like Qwmbach Corner needs a dedicated mod at this point. I don't visit often but mainly because it's unbearable to read and most threads end up looking like a Facebook group with people using acronyms and barely-punctuated posts – stuff that's frowned on elsewhere across the site. And that's aside from the high-key misogyny, choice political opinions, general white nonsense, etc.
It just needs one specific mod to keep the whole thing in line because when regulars there drift into one of the main forums there's an extreme disconnect that often gets really ugly.
The obvious choices for me would be:
@Slice of Life
@Dennis and me in our Ex-Mod support group
Not me waking up to all this. Aww, shucks.
If I had to vote for anyone that would be a fair moderator who wouldn’t allow insensitive foolery on the forum, @Andy French, @OspreyQueen, and @ohnostalgia come to mind immediately.
are the first names that come to mind.
I'll join everyone else in suggesting @superultra, @ohnostalgia, @BEST FICTION, @beyoncésweave and @Slice of Life too.
And love to those of you who said me even though I barely show my face in P&J these days except to stan one of the indie girls.
Yet gifs and "dddd" is too much for them to handle.
I’d be willing to throw my hat in the ring for Comeback Corner mod.
I want to add the lack of female representation in the moderation has been frustrating so I think having female mods is absolutely necessary.
In addition to my other choices who I feel would be nuanced and objective to deal with the overall messiness of the forum but @Island would be a absolutely fantastic mod for comeback corner I can’t think of anyone more suitable.
I do think this forum needs to be more in line with the rest of internet in 2020 but that’s a whole another topic of conversation.
Beside female representation, is there any POC members (specifically Black) in here that can do the mod job well ? I don't really know anyone's background here sorry.
I’d like to see some of the part time staff members get bumped up to full mod status. Ones that will be impartial and not cause drama.
@Tribal Spaceman is a great choice.
But the rest of the internet is a dumpster fire???
Separate names with a comma.
